This is how much more men make than women in every industry

Technology Eye | April. 13, 2016

Based on more than 534,000 salary reports shared on the job review site, Glassdoor recently found that women earn on average $0.95 cents for every dollar men earn when you take into account a person's age, education, years of job experience, job title, employer, and location. That's an adjusted gender pay gap of 5.4%.

Overall, when comparing all men to all women, Glassdoor found women earn 24.1% less than what men earn, or $0.76 on the dollar. That number is similar to what the US Census Bureau reports, which is that women in the US working full-time, year-round are paid $0.79 for every dollar paid to men.

The gender pay gap varies based on industry, reaching as much as 7.2% for the health care and insurance industries, and shrinking to 2.5% for the aerospace and defense industry and agriculture and forestry industry, where women earn on average almost the same amount as men — but still less.
